A timeless masterpiece of Danish animation
11 January 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

A timeless children's classic - with its unique water-color style Jannik Hastrup has created a true masterpiece of Danish animation. Once again he has given full justice to one of Bent Haller's wonderful books. The voice acting, especially Tommy Kenter and Claus Ryskjær, and the music by Fuzzy, Jacob Groth, and Søren Kragh-Jacobsen represent the best of its time.

The movie handles themes that lie just beyond the grasp of children, such as love, parenting, war, drinking, and growing up, in a powerful yet very gentle way. It has many moments that will never be forgotten and the characters will stay in children's hearts forever.
